Her Rainbow Dress


Oh man!  I LOVE being retired and just being able to scrap E.V.E.R.Y. D.A.Y!

Here is the CSI challenge where they are joining forces with Archi-Scraps!  The first one!

More colours TOTALLY out of my comfort zone, so it took a fair amount of procrastinating on my part with how I was going to tackle it!  And here is what I came up with today:
Scheme : Check
Evidence : Stripes, paint, clouds
Testimony : IW's colour and walk
My journaling is in the form of a poem:
Her rainbow dress, so pretty and so bright
Her rainbow dress pops with colour in the light
Her rainbow dress, it flounces as she walks
Her rainbow dress, imagine if it could talk!
Her rainbow dress, a clear favourite, don'tcha know
Her rainbow dress, it really puts on quite a show
Her rainbow dress - such pure delight!
Her rainbow dress, the pair of them - WHAT a sight!
And here are some close-ups.  The yellow on the background is a combo of Distress paint (& masking) and gelato's.
